Raymond Lam looks vicious in his upper deck bus fight

The Louis Koo Tin Lok, Sammo Hung Kam Bo, Raymond Lam Fung and Richie Jen (Yam Yin Chai) starred, Soi Cheang Pou Soi directed WALLED IN (GAU LUNG SING JAI WAI SING) has already started production in Hong Kong at the end of November last year. Originally the production planned to wrap up after the Lunar New Year, but due to the fifth wave of the pandemic worsening, actor Deon Cheung Chung Chi tested positive and led the team into a panic. Later when the pandemic grew out of control crew members also tested positive and the production came to a halt. Recently as the pandemic eased, WALLED rapidly resumed production. Because Lam Fung in April or May would have to work on another Emperor new film NOI MOK, the team recently focused on finishing his scenes and "hand him over".

The film took place in the 80s Kowloon Walled City's lawless zone, for which sets were built all over Hong Kong. The team lately constructed a large scale Walled City scene in an empty space at Kowloon Bay and erected a giant green screens. A bucket truck was used to assist with the shoot of Lam Fung's bus fight scene. The production was rather serious.

Around 7PM, Lam Fung arrived on the set in a van. Because almost 100 people were at work on the set, to ensure safety a temperature check station was set up at the entrance. The cast and the crew had to take a rapid test and temperature check before entering. Lead Lam Fung was no exception. His assistant left the vehicle to pick up his testing kit for him, then the test was done inside the van. 15 minutes later after the result was confirmed, the vehicle was permitted to enter the location.

With a young wife and a small child, Lam Fung in order to reduce the risk of infection remained inside the vehicle before taking his mark and avoided contact with others. He even had dinner inside the vehicle. The team starting from dusk prepared for the action scene and even used a very convincingly "Lam Fung 2.0" double to test the mark for the shoot to be at its most accurate and precise.

Around 8 PM, Lam Fung appeared in short hair, a mask, a jacket and taped fists. After talking with the crew he immediately went inside the bus for his fight scene. Spending several months before the production began on stunt training, he fought from the upper deck to the lower deck of the bus. Full of expressions when he punched, he looked dominant. After shooting many shots, he immediately put on his mask out of an abundance of caution. Then he went to watch the play back with the director, talk about the results, after which he returned to the bus to continue the shoot.
